A rather late seawatch at Aird an Runair, North Uist this morning 10.20-11.50 hours. Sunny intervals and a NW wind F3-4. Some movement SW and Fulmars were more in evidence than in last couple of watches. Species included 225 Fulmars, 253 Manx Shearwaters, two Sanderling, six Kittiwakes, and single Arctic and Great Skuas. Also a single auk (Guillemot or Razorbill) - unusually scarce so far.

Earlier a juvenile Ruff was near Loch Paible.
